I enjoy customizing old Schwinn lightweights and other brands to my liking for todays standards and use.

Enjoying my 37 Colson Commander
I picked up this 1970 root beer brown super sport, color I will call it. Added modern Sunrims 27" with new hubs, Panaracer gum wall, five speed cog, one single Schwinn shifter lever at the headset, BB is a sleeve to add a lightweight crank, note one silver and one black arm side:), VO city bars, Wald basket, brooks seat, and a touch of non super sport products such as brown Schwinn grips and custom fitted 27" Suburban brown fender guards; wanted to look like a suburban kind of. A great in town ride for sure. OF course chain to prevent easy consumption of seat from bike thieves, a deterrent is. My theory, make the bike next to you look easier to steel, not yours. I worked it,I have just under 300- on this bike, way less of an investment locked outside then my other rides.

Interesting, but there is one thing that will attract us bike parts thieves. If I walked past your bike and had my Swiss Army wrench set I'd be heisting that Brooks saddle in a heart beat, but it looks like you have it chained to the bike. Hope that chain doesn't have a quick link. :p

Not a quick link, not a perfect world, just a deterrent, I use a seat cover when parked as well.I had a cheep seat, but the damn thing was not fun.
